I just got Pokemon emerald and i got 5 badges already. Im afraid my save file will be corrupted or something bad will happen because i might try out some cheats and i want some certain pokemons that are exclusive. My question is how can i protect my current save file? i can use that one as a kind of ''back-up'' like if i play tomorrow and at a certain point it says my save file is corrupted(because i used cheat code ) so i can always have my original save file which isnt corrupted and know that cheat brings up trouble.
It will be my first time using cheat code so i am kind off scared my save file will be screwed. Thats why i want to protect my current save file so i can use the other one to test it out and if it brings up trouble i know that the cheat code bring trouble.
